[Commission] The Royal Portraitist by dSana [Commission] The Royal Portraitist by dSana
This is commission for wonderful wobwobwobniaR - it's the first time someone has asked me to draw Stainless Key, my OC! ^^

It's been really fun to make, thank you for commissioning me.

Maybe you can guess the inspiration for the paiting? ;-)

Now, with an alternative version requested by Pony-Berserker :0

I still think that one piece of Spike as Neigh-poleon is pretty cool.

Neat, weird though that his legs are over her wings. I would think that would be quite uncomfortable for Twilight. He would have his legs behind her wings likely.

Ah, yeah. Normally he keeps his legs behind her wings, but this is just so painting resembles the original more :D

What a wonderful picture!  The scene itself is very charming and the colors all go wonderfully together.  Commenters have gone into greater depth as to why this picture works, so I don't need to say too much.  However, I did notice that Twilight's hair isn't solid like normal due to the blowing fan, and I think Spike's head-scales are also blowing slightly as well.  It's subtle details like that which make this picture feel more alive!

I'll be adding this to my favorites.  Well done :D.

By the way, Stainless has good taste in art, being inspired by Napoleon Crossing the Alps and all.  Though one must wonder how the art of our world found its way into Equestria ;P.

Who knows, perhaps Stainless visited Equestria Girls universe at some point? ;-) Anyway thank you for yet another lovely comment, Wanderer :)

Oh!  If she did visit, I wonder if she saw any Impressionist paintings ;P.

You're more than welcome :D.

Such an honor to do the royal portrait, Spike looks so dashing as Napoleon and painting with your mouth can’t be easy. Well done!

Such a regal looking painting.  And a neat twist on the old idea of a Princess and her Dragon.

I've been wondering when you'd finally be included in your own work, and this is brilliant.  A drawing of you painting a painting of your two good friends and subjects.

I love the colors here, including you using a literal color palette!  The way you incorporate blue and purple into so many areas gives a good steadiness.  I love the blue of your fur and the crystals and floor.  And of course, Twilight and Spike are rocking the purple against that curtain.  And Spike looks so gallant with that cape!

Those added elements like the fan, your sunglasses and cutie mark are very fun to look at.  You look so cute in that beret!  And that spot of paint on your cheek is so fitting! :D

As for the inspiration, I'm afraid that alludes me.  But oh well. :-)

Lovely work as always, dSana!  I'm thinking of another commission, by the way.  I'll let you know once I've put some more thought into it. :heart:

It's about time, isn't it? :D I'm glad to hear you like the little deatils and colours. As for the inspiration, google "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" :]

Another commission sounds good - I know it's going to be something fun to draw Heart

You should make an alt. version of this with the picture on the canvas being something silly/funny or completely botched up :P  Like, the pictured could be centered on Spike so much that Twilight's head is off-screen or the other way around =P
